    I'm a sucker for so-called "mockumentaries." They're charming, usually outlandish, and you never have to worry if anyone is getting exploited. NBT is no exception.
  2. Wickedly funny and subversive.

    It has moments of Guest-like faux earnestness that instantly mark it as one of the smartest and most insightful comedies of the year. But imitation only takes you so far, and by the film's sagging final 30 minutes, it's evident "NBT" isn't quite up to the master's standards.
  4. 50
    Has no stylistic flair and little forward momentum, yet nearly every scene contains an amusing bit of business, much of it off to the side of the main action.

    What's most surprising about Never Been Thawed is that it's not completely awful. It's just a little awful.

    Passably offbeat.
  7. 0
    This painfully unfunny mockumentary about obsessive collectors of frozen-food entrees takes potshots at anti-abortionists, Christian rockers, aversion therapy for gays and the disabled -- and misses almost every time.

    It's not trying to be Dances With Wolves. It's just trying to be f...ing funny. And it succeeds.
